limbaugh back at the end of may saying that obama hates white people. pat buchanan saying white men are, quote, experiencing exactly what black people experienced during segregation, which is, of course, absurd, that kind of rhetoric underlying this opposition makes it very hard for me to think that race is not in the picture. >> okay. so then if we're going to put blame on anyone's shoulders, whose fault is it anyway? is it people buying into the rhetoric or some of the people you mention, some of the conservative talk show hosts there. should they be more responsible with their language because people may be buying into what they're saying and not realizing that it's coded racism. >> well, words have consequences, and i think if you're going to have a microphone and you're going to speak to millions of listeners every day, you have a responsibility to, first of all, do your homework so you don't tell lies about the health care bill and act like they're going to kill grandma and then send sarah palin out there with a head full of nothing to tell lies to the american people. and when yo

in for the great rush limbaugh. for people who don't know that microphone is really gold. >> as you well know, it is goal p--- it is gold. sean: in my first five minutes the microphone fell to the ground, oh, no, my career is over. >> i'll try not to do that. sean: you do a great job. let's talk a little bit about the polls. the president's approval rating, every reputable poll shows he's losing ground and health care is losing ground. what's your analysis? >> his personal rating is coming down to meet the unpopularity of his policies. basically it's been a few weeks since "newsweek" said he was like a god. and the more he connects with the policies the more he's a 50-50% like his predecessor, and i think most people, a lot of people really believe he was a post partisan centrist, pragmatic, physically conservative figure that he campaigned as. and as you and a few others pointed out, he's not, the extreme left wing is where he's lived all his life and has a transformtive agenda people don't want. sean: we discussed this with dick morris, his floating this trial balloon about eliminating the

beginning when rush limbaugh says, well, we don't want him to succeed, we don't want president obama to succeed. i want him to fail. well, rush limbaugh has an extraordinary audience, and many of them feel very strongly and are influenced by him. they have senator de mint saying well, we got his waterloo on this health care, we can defeat him. well, there are people out there that want to defeat, don't want to see the president succeed. we shall be encouraged that here is a president that's willing to tackle the most difficult issue we are facing and we should give him a chance to do that. but i think the tone has been set there. so you find people who will come in and hijack these meetings for the purpose of expressing that. >> speaking of that, twl their was a heated exchange that happened at a meeting you were speaking at. it wasn't even a meeting on health care. let's just play a little bit of what went down there. >> all right. >> don't come and take advantage of what these individuals have done! you want a meeting with me on health care? i'll give it to you. >> that was after a

. >> you might have heard their philosophical leader, i think his name is rush limbaugh ap he said early on, i hope that he fails. do you know what that means? if the president, your commander-in-chief fails, america fails. so remember, they are spreading fear and they're trying to see that the first president who looks like me fai fails. >> wow, that was california congress woman diane watson at a town hall meeting in los angeles and that's not the only shocking thing she had to say. there is even more. joining me to weigh in is radio talk show host and fox news contributor mike gallagher been a while. >> it's been a while. i don't know if president obama would be complimented or offended to hear that he looks like her, he may not like that comparis comparison. >> that's another question. you bring up a good point. i'll bet the president wantsening to do with that comment because the president does not want race brought into the equation ands' made that very clear. why did diane watson oon make it an issue. she knows rush limbaugh criticism has nothing to do with race so why bring it up? >
. it was included in the bill beez these two wanted it. then thed are cal right, sarah palin, rush limbaugh, others, even charles grassley, says we're pulling the plug on grandma and calling it a death panel? it was a republican idea. >> and the congressman distanced himself from that whole idea, but what does the president need to do? i mean, is there one thing that he could offer here that the republicans would sign on board? >> thank you. let me give you two. talking about equalizing the tax treatment between people that buy their insurance directly from an insurer and people that get insurance directly from their employers. that's a reasonable position that the president should be willing to talk about, but he criticized john mccain in the presidential election and the unions are against it so he won't talk about it. medical malpractice reform is another commonsense solution. i would say to the president you have an opportunity to get something bipartisan here but you've got to walk away from the left side of your party. he's never been willing to do that. >> paul, i want to show you this nbc n
to rush limbaugh or something. what? the government? no, they got to be out of it. as though he had base -- base-itis or something. >> i don't know. i don't know. lil we, what do you think? >> i think -- i think we should go to politico? >> isn't that something, though? he did. he gets in a lot of trouble. >> well, you know. he is kind of a shoots from the hip a little bit. >> he does. >> by the way he operates and sometimes that gets him in a little bit of trouble i guess you can say. >> maybe behind the scenes and starts the raise money and organizing and things such as this. >> if your interview. >> stop being interviewed. unless on this show. >> always welcome here. >> so who do we have got politico? >> patrick flavin. let's talk about the politics. but the politics of the passing of the ted kennedy, you eve heard whispers already, some democrats about the health care debate saying let's win this one for teddy. they have to be careful with that, though, don't they? >> they do. for two reasons, for democrats the name of kennedy is golden and cherished but the name kennedy means libera
and right and wrong. >>> and rush limbaugh comparing president obama's health care low e lowgo to a swas ka. how does the talk compromise is whole darn country, contessa? >>> then women, this is the result, contessa, women have been driven to drink. the statistics show it. that story of the wrong way driver who killed seven, including four children, may not be an isolated case. a new report suggests women are drinking more than ever. >>> swine flu in schools. a live news conference this hour to announce the government's plan of action. dr. nancy snyderman will join us. it is 9:00 a.m. friday morning. nice to see you. >>> welcome. a nice day. >> this is big story of the morning here. this was supposed to be a town hall in tampa, florida. hosted by congresswoman, kathy castor. >> you work for us, you work for us. >> police estimated 1500 people tried to cram into an event. they jammed up against the doors. one guy says he was actually man handled, may end up going to police about it. >> one of them took my arm and doing a arm -- arm twist, tore my watch off, then the other one grabbed me by t
those. >> okay. >> i did find your article interesting yesterday. rush limbaugh showed great restraint, saying that he felt uncomfortable saying anything negative about senator kennedy as did michelle maul klkin, shed other republicans, back off. >> the only thing he said was senator kennedy was lion and we were his prey. that was actually pretty tame. chap paquiddick was one of the biggest buzz words online. ted kennedy may get the last word or a piece of his critics more in death than life. he has a new memoir coming out, being buds as his most open and honest discussions about some of the things that have taken place in his past. you have to assume chappaquiddick is one of those a. lot of critics say we think he should have talked about it more and apologized more and perhaps his book will put it to rest. >> he hasn't talked about it in 40 years and every time asked, said i answered those questions. anniversary coming up, not a good one in a couple weeks. the anniversary of the fall of lehman brothers, hard to believe it's been a year. september 15th. how will the white house mark t
to their leader, drug-addicted rush limbaugh. i'm very concerned hearding they show up at the meetings with ak-47s because that's quote unquote is their right. they want this president not only hurt, but gone. if you know what gone means, you get my drift. because they are never going to give him any leeway. the republicans that call before me, there are very few and far between. as far as joe that georgia, he calls all the time. he's one of the radicals. why are they taking -- what they they lost with him in the white house? please have them call in and tell me. >> >> host: molly, hold on. the headline white house backs right to arms outside obama events. >> caller: but did they do it before inform this is a side to president obama. they want to intimidate him. it's a prop for that. and i heard that they take these guns. : it is in them and giving a sign, we are in power and we got the guns and i tell you if they don't get a handle on the radical right wing with this bitch real hatred of our president of the united states -- vitriolic hatred. host: is a bipartisan health bill and poor? donnell on
gates well enough to know -- the most surprising thing about hearing rush limbaugh and these guys go off, want to tell them president obama and professor gates might no way more than the most of the rest of us. [laughter] we are giving you the best we have. this is the very best we have, intellectually personally, and in their sense of wanting to bridge socially and personally and intellectually. if you reject them, if they are labeled as militant or radical or racist, there is no hope. >> what i know is i knew my role on the streets of detroit. i know while i met the crib, yes sir, no sir, at that is what you think, yes sir. intellectually, i am raising a finger at him, but i understand you have to show your young kids not to pave the way professor gates did. you don't have a harvard pedigree and you don't have barack obama as your friend. you be quiet and silent until you can assert your man had later on. not testosterone, black survival. that's what the real deal is.
